Spirit's physical development
When I first picked up Spirit at 13 weeks, I took him into my vet immediately for a checkup. He weighed 31lbs, the vet said he looked undernourished. I changed his food to Purina Pro Plan for large breed puppies. At his 2-week checkup, he had gained 15lbs ... so at 15 weeks Spirit weighs 46lbs. He is NOT fat, anywhere ... he looks great.
How is he measuring up with the averages here as far as growth? He seems quite large compared to some of the posts I'm reading.
Anyone here have a mature male that was similar to Spirit now? Is his weight now an indication of how large he will be at maturity? When do they stop growing? What am I looking at ultimately with respect to his size at maturity?
